I think the character Boyle is there as an avatar of a younger Will, to do the kinds of things a younger Will might have done but now can't, in pursuit of LG'a resurgence. He is the agent of unbridled ambition.
I also like Jason O'Mara quite a lot. He was great in the US version of Life on Mars, even if the show itself had a few issues, and completely wasted in last year's Vegas. It's good to see him on a quality show like this one.
I agree that if there's one thing wrong, it's that there are so many good storylines and interesting characters that many of them don't seem to get enough attention. An embarrassment of riches.
